According to Investment News, “Non-traded REIT czar” Nicholas Schorsch has resigned from American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP). In addition, Schorsch also “resigned from the boards of directors of nontraded REITs managed by Cole Capital, a nontraded REIT sponsor owned by ARCP.”
Investment News reports that Mr. Schorsch has been taking a step back since November. “[H]e resigned as chief executive from at least six companies he oversees, including three non traded REITs sponsored by American Realty Capital (ARC).”
Mr. Schorsch’s resignation follows the $24million dollar ARCP accounting error that was allegedly intentionally covered up a month and a half ago. Mr Schorsch was not the only one to hand in his resignation. ARCP’s chief executive, David Kay, and chief operation officer, Lisa Beeson, also resigned.
